Subject: Stupid no account tree...
I saw the Rifftrax guys riff on this a couple years ago, and they kept noticing how many times the tree claimed it was "of no account." I chuckled every time I heard it here.

Subject: Highly sentimental
It's corny, I admit, and Spuzz makes a good point about the eventual dumping not being shown.

Nevertheless, I find this short to be enjoyable.

Subject: Size DOES matter..
Cute little movie about a wee pine tree all upset that there are larger trees then him. He's all mopey until kids spot him and cut him down! Why? To make him a Christmas tree of course! Hurray! All is well! Until of course, they dump him in the garbage after Christmas... (not shown)
